Our work

Ash dieback in a mature tree

Ash dieback on the estate at Standen  

Many of the ash trees at Standen are unfortunately suffering from ash dieback. Over the coming months we’ll be felling affected trees where they could impact on our visitor’s safety. Work is likely to begin in the first week in November and will continue through February. We may need to temporarily close parts of the estate for work to take place safely.
